Assistance League of Greater Placer will be mailing letters throughout the Placer County area asking for donations for their “Annual Appeal 4 Kids in Need.” All donations collected will benefit their Operation School Bell program. Each year, Operation School Bell provides Placer County students in need, in elementary school through high school, with clothing and shoes. Working directly with schools, the program also provides school supplies, dictionaries, backpacks, personal grooming kits and tutoring. Funds for all of Assistance League programs come from dues, fundraisers, donations and money raised by selling reusable clothing, household items and furniture in their thrift shop at 1263 Grass Valley Highway, Auburn. For more information, contact Suzanne Ross at 663-2123.
